Looking for used XE285 engine (Inntec 800 or equivalent)
#1
Looking for a junk Inntec 800 or snowmobile 800cc equivalent to cannabalize some parts that are not currently available from the OEM.

Dick,

About three years ago I was goofing around on the Internet and went to eBay and Amazon and found a few engines at prices that were surprising. Give it a look.

Hi Dick
Engines if found on E-bay, Amazon, generally would be running engines. And you would pay a premium price for them. If your thinking of cannibalizing, you might google snowmobile salvage yards. They would be more than happy to sell you a damaged 800 engine or the parts you are looking for, at fair price. I am sure you know this, but anyway. They were made by Suzuki & were used in Artic Cat snowmobiles.  

Good, luck.

Thanks Leo. Hadn't thought of junked snowmobiles. Unfortunately, I'm in the wrong part of the country, but I can google.

Hey Dick

Google salvage yards in Wi, Min, & Mi. Most of them will ship. If the eng is junk they will remove the parts you need. And send them to you.

Are you still playing around with the existing engine after that overheat?

Here is an engine I found on eBay. $799. I saw two on the first page.

Yes, apparently the high temp damaged the plastic water pump impeller, leading to inefficient cooling.  OEM part has been back ordered for many months, so I tried a third party aluminum impeller.  It has not worked out as well, but cooling was under control.

However, looks like EBay is my friend for finding an OEM impeller.  I'll update when I get it.

Dick,

Could you upload a photo of the impeller. It would be interesting to see.

As a matter of interest, at any point did you price a new replacement engine from CompositeFX or elsewhere. I would have thought they should be fairly reasonably priced, and since you know the existing motor has been overheated it might make sense to just replace it.
